Biochar Ecotechnology for Sustainable Agriculture and Environment summarizes current accomplishments in biochar ecotechnologies for enhancing agricultural production, encouraging sustainable waste management, and fostering a circular bioeconomy by advancing the pyrolysis process at both large-scale industrial and small-scale-local levels. This book will also address various topics and issues raised by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals that are critical to include in efforts to advance agrotechnology, sustainability, and environmental protection, such as decarbonization through biochar production and its application for soil carbon management and sequestration in combating global warming effects, boosting circular bioeconomy through the bio-waste management, and biochar or biochar-based fertilizer for increasing soil fertility and food production. The chapters in this book will synthesize recent breakthroughs in biochar agro-ecotechnologies for increasing agricultural productivity and promoting circular bioeconomy by advancing the pyrolysis process and add mechanisms involved in biochar-fertilizer mediated in-soil biogeochemical cycle and nutrients retention, availability and their losses, soil-microbial responses, emission of greenhouse gases, and plant responses. Finally, this book aims to increase research understanding of nanotechnological breakthroughs in the production of biochar-based slow-release fertilizers, including their Nano characteristics involved in increasing fertilizer usage efficiency and managing chemical losses, for sustainable agriculture and the environment.
